Do you realize that without writers, the world would be a very boring place to live? When you are watching a movie, watching your favorite TV show, enjoying that funny commercial you like, reading those instructions for that item you purchased that says, "some assembly required," even watching your favorite 'reality show', because let's face it, reality shows are scripted, listening to your favorite music, it took a writer to bring all that entertainment to you!

Writers are a necessary vice to the world we live in. Without communication, what kind of language would we speak? Everything we do requires the written word, which is why I always say it's important to respect the words you speak and write. This is the reason I've always been intrigued with writing. It's mind blowing to me, when I think this deeply, that everything we do requires a form of reading and writing, and some of us are better at it than others, but it's an important thing we must all do.

What I love most about writing is that it's the only place where I am in total control. No one can tell me not to make this character do this or that, and no one can tell me that character shouldn't say this or that, I'm in full control over what I am doing, and it's something that no one can take away from me, which is why I love doing it. It's my thoughts, it's my creativity, it's all me, and I love it.

The travesty, I find, is that our children today don't have an imagination. They take what other writers give them through their Playstation, XBOX and Nintendo games, and believe this is the world they would like to reside in, but where's their imagination. As a child, I used to lay out in the grass and look up at the sky and dream all sorts of things. Children don't play and use their imagination. We as parents need to make our children read, so they can expand their impressionable minds, and encourage positive thoughts so that they may one day grow up to become great writers and bring about a positive change to our world. Because after all, if you don't fill their heads up with positive messages, how can you expect them to bring about positive change?

The same holds true for adults. When your soul craves some intellectual stimulation, curling up with a great book can cure what ails you!
